They began to go with tests for lessons. The director told me that we will check on how you lead the lesson. I prepared for the dictation she [директор] did not come when dictation was to be. And then, when I did not expect to come with a check, she sent a head teacher. She sat in my class and began to find fault with everything, she said that she would come again on Monday. And I decided that I would no longer work there — I had enough.
The teacher also complained that the school began to persecute her son, who is in the 11th grade. He is threatened not to be allowed to come to the USE:
She is [учительница] his poison, yes. Causes to the blackboard and twos puts. She knows that he acts as an actor, why does he need mathematics? There is no way to change the approach, would give the card easier. If, nevertheless, the son is not allowed to come to the USE, then for sure I will go everywhere.
Nevertheless, the teacher noted, the students and their parents continue to support her after her dismissal.
The pressure on Kuvshinnikova began in the winter, when she published photos in social networks in a closed bathing suit and evening dress. The teacher has been in winter swimming for several years and is a member of the Altai federation of hardening and winter swimming “Polar Bears”. Sensational photos were taken after the swim in honor of the Universiade in Krasnoyarsk.
The mother of one of the students complained to the school principal. As a result, the teacher was dismissed, accusing that she lures students. Later, due to public outcry, she was reinstated.
